OG Betty “Retro Betty” Artist – Susan Burton
Susan Burton was born 1984 in Wellington, New Zealand. Susan has been an artist her whole life and now currently resides in a busy tattoo shop in Melbourne, Australia. Primarily known as an illustrator, Susan has followed her love for art through a variety of mediums. Having strong influences by retro and art deco styles, bright sharp imagery has always played a big part in shaping Susan’s finished pieces. Artists such as Jim Philips, Sean Cliver and Jeremy Klein have been a few of Susan’s many inspirations.
It is the art in skateboard culture is where Susan’s interest now lies. For the past three years painting skateboards is the medium Susan prefers. Whether it is restoring a old vintage decks or giving a face to a new board, her passion can been seen through each individual piece. A few of her works have popped up in exhibitions in Melbourne, Los Angeles and currently has a piece touring America with Art Deck Co.
